Lippel loves to dream and because you need peace and quiet to dream, he would be happiest if he could spend the holidays at home. But he’s out of luck! His parents take him with them to the Lofoten islands and there, high in the Far North, he has the greatest adventure of his life. He meets Luna, a girl who could just as easily be a troll the way she looks, with her red hair, bare feet and ragged trousers. No wonder Lippel is soon dreaming again, this time about the troll princess Ganaxa with her cute bat ears and fluffy tail, who captures his heart and leads him into all kinds of unsuspected dangers – because in her father’s underground kingdom, everything is very different. This is the sequel to Lippel’s Dream, the Paul Maar bestseller that has not only won several awards but has also been adapted for number of films.
